2018 has been such a fun year for me! As I look back on 2018, on how much I’ve grown and how much fun I’ve had, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude: To God for sending me the most amazing brides and clients in His timing. To my husband for taking on a lot of extra responsibilities around the […]

He slipped her grandmother’s tiny silver band on her left ring finger, in the church they’d joined four years earlier and promised her forever.

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is capturing the details. I know many brides spend countless hours scouring Pinterest and creating a vision of what can make their day unique. I remember doing the same thing.

Kasey sat down to read Nick’s letter. The room was empty, except for us. Her bridesmaids were waiting patiently outside the room at The Tutwiler to see her as a bride for the first time. She was stunning. Her lace gown was trailing down the white sofa and onto the floor alongside her cathedral veil. Nick was downstairs in […]
